The chukka is one of footwear’s finest hybrids. This particular version is something special we dreamed up (so, basically, you’ll only see it here), for your fall footwear enjoyment. Part oxford, part boot, it goes beyond a mere shoe without becoming a full-on boot. And unlike so many half-measures in the world of style, it manages to rise above precisely because of its in-between-ness. The distinctive combination of natural/reverse natural Chromexcel makes for a nice study in contrasts. Despite what you may have heard, the roughout-reverse leather takes a beating exceptionally well, and looks all the better for it. Equally at home with denim or chinos, our version can dress up a bit with ease, thanks to the cap-toe detailing, leather sole, and generally slim profile.
Made from natural Horween® Chromexcel® leather, with true Goodyear Welt Construction, oiled leather Waterlock soles, a stacked leather heel with Vibram toplift, and a calfskin vamp lining. Handcrafted in the USA, and fully recraftable when the time comes.
George Vlagos might not have known it when he was young, but he was born to make shoes. The son of a cobbler, the Oak Street Bootmakers founder and designer started early, apprenticing at his father’s shop and learning the craft of shoemaking before most of us even knew what the word “cobbler” meant. Now, Oak Street Bootmakers is intent on preserving the heritage of fine shoemaking by creating its own thoughtfully designed, carefully crafted shoes. Constructed from renowned Horween Chromexcel leather, all Oak Street shoes and boots are handcrafted in the USA by shoemakers with over 20 years of experience. OSB’s modern interpretations of classic designs, mixed with fresh new styles of their own creation, combine to make a line we get excited just thinking about.
